Abstract

The Iowa Department of Human Rights, Division of Criminal and Juvenile Justice Planning (CJJP) entered into an agreement with the Iowa Department of Corrections (IDOC) to conduct an evaluation of FY2008 offenders placed in Iowa residential facilities, focusing on the risk principle. The risk principle poses that exposure to correctional interventions decreases recidivism for high‐risk offenders but increases recidivism for low‐risk offenders. Demographic data and comparisons of recidivism rates between study groups and risk categories are presented in the body of the report.
